Sheatre is an award-winning, multi-disciplinary, community arts organization. Our mission is to inspire creative expression, transformative learning and change through socially relevant workshops and productions.
We believe in the power of theatre and the arts to change lives and help build a compassionate and healthy society.
Artists and community members work collaboratively to co-create a project using immersive creative processes that are as important as the product. We create events suited to a community’s unique demographics, current issues and history, and that are a true expression of their individuality and their relationship to the world. Our goal is to stimulate understanding, discussion and change.
Founded in 1985, our events have attracted over 86,000 people of all ages in Canada, the US and Europe. We have produced and co-facilitated over 110 community plays and theatre forum presentations, and hundreds of workshops. Sheatre’s work is project based. Joan Chandler is the company's founding and current Artistic Director.
Sheatre primarily serves rural and small urban communities. Our office is located in rural Ontario, near Wiarton, between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.
